There are just days remaining until entries open for New Zealand’s 2020 RCSA Industry Awards and last year’s winners have come out in force to encourage their colleagues to enter.
Entries open on January 27 and many of 2019’s winners say their wins not only had a significant impact on their careers, but in some cases changed the way they viewed the recruitment industry.
Yvonne Tay-Corbett of Robert Walters, who was named 2019’s New Zealand Rising Star of the Year, said the win was “an awesome honour” and great recognition of all the hard work she spearheaded in the lead-up to the company’s first tech “hackathon”.
“It also was super meaningful as it showed the recruitment industry’s commitment to investing in the actual industries we recruit in, not just our own,” Yvonne said.
The win gave her more motivation to organise a second hackathon this year and she encouraged all New Zealand recruiters to consider nominating for the 2020 awards.
“It’s a great opportunity to share with others in the industry what you’ve been up to,” Yvonne said.
